right now in san francisco would go a long way to say that we kind of got this thing figured out, but we can always get better. before i leave and pass it over to the panel and back over to audrey, maybe for about five minutes i can take any questions. i never want to leave without hearing it from me. ok, jocelyn, they are all happy. thank you. [applause] >> our board of supervisors is very important to us. they make laws that we have to follow. it gives me great pleasure to introduce the president of the board of supervisors, david chiu. [applause] >> good afternoon. first, if any of you have ever wondered what an ls -- and elected officials sounds like with anesthesia and his mouth, i want to let you know that i got out of a dental chair 20 minutes ago after a few hours of dentists work. but i wanted to give a few remarks of how i think we are doing. i'm very much more are optimistic about how we're doing than four years ago. i read an article from the chronicle and it said that the candidates disagreed on everything, except for the need to crack down on entertainment violence. i did n
the residents of san francisco to take a stand against violence in our home, in our city and throughout the world. and just think, if women were equally included in decision-making around the world, there would be no economic disaster throughout the world. so today as part of dancing and part of celebrating, but the important message that we all stand united together. to take the pledge to end violence against women and girls for good. so let's do this together, are you ready for the pledge? all right. i just wanted to get you ready. we will be back in a very short second for this pledge. i have to listen to the women on this stage. >> you better, mr. mayor. san francisco are we ready? are we rising? let's show the world that san francisco can be counted on. just think about it for a moment. one out of every three women will be sexually abused or assaulted in their lifetime. that has to stop. and we here in san francisco are going to show no tolerance for abuse against young girls and women. are we ready? are we rising? i have to take a moment to thank some people. first i want to thank

[ applause ] but since i'm an old dude, i'm not going to do that because that would seem unseemly. what i do say is when this is all said and done, willie would seem to be an individual who em bodies the classic american story success of invention and reinvention. born of talent, skill, determination, brilliance, lots of plain old hard work. and the ability to take one's god given talent, fashion it, shape it, mold it into something quite remarkable and remarkably effective and enduring. willie brown is a game changer. thank you, willie, for all your work, talents, brilliance, heart, your and forgiving a damn. thank you.

have a market in san francisco where the cost of living is sky rocketing like crazy and to maintain that is beyond the means of most people including myself and at a pretty high salary here in san francisco, but we're proposing to cut new hires pays for certain classifications that is significant. that is not keeping up with the growing cost of living. i will stop there -- >> if you would i would like to address the cost of living and we are providing it to all employees and we are unique in this sector for doing so. maybe sonoma is doing it but we are unusual in that. i didn't touch on the two tier. the reason the city proposed -- the city doesn't love having the two tier. we would like one wage rate within a classification but we believe that within the fact it wouldn't affect any current employees and we didn't want to pull the rug out and people should know what we're getting into with a job and all of the classifications and significantly and preserving the gains of comparable worth if bee do that. the two tier is absolutely what the city has done three times since i have
% more? we work in san francisco general hospital. it's a level one trauma center. i invite you to come. i will exchange job with you for one week to see what you do for you guys, for the citizens of san francisco. there are a lot of people that lost their job they come over there. there are a lot of people they get into traditional accidents we take care of them. >> >> i hope you're not one of them or your family but when you come you're opening a brand-new hospital. how are you going to employ that hospital with the way you're going? this is not going to work. people are leaving. we can't retain people. this is not pushing paper. we are dealing with people's lives there. when people come with gunshot wounds, stab wounds, horrible car accidents and we save lives everyday. we don't sit behind desks. we deal with people's lives and for you to say that we are making more money than we're supposed to. i don't think that is right. you compare us to other people that they are living in counties over 100,000. we live in san francisco. we work over here and we work for th
in san francisco? >> unfortunately, we have them all. the rock from here is used from the sea wall. it came from this hill. it was a itgnoll that was present. because of this blasting that occurred, the rock is weak. while most of the time, there are times of heavy rain. sometimes, this has nothing to do with the rainfall. iraq is 50 to an old and then it just falls. in this particular area where we're standing, we have seen the wall at the base. >> the big steel beams with the fence. this is an effective way of preventing the rock that does fall from causing damage. that might protect the bottom of the hill but it doesn't do anything over the hill. >> it has long been my understanding that the city of san francisco says and the building department takes this position that there is no one buildable lot -- unbuildable lot. i wonder if this is realistic. >> if money is an issue, we can develop solutions that will mitigate the impact. that a solution can be eliminating the hill, that can eliminate the problem. or build a structure right into the hill so there is no longer an exposed f

the commission on status of women issued the comppable pay study of the city and county of san francisco. in 1981 the board of supervisors passed a resolution stating unequivocal support to lmentd pay inequities based on race and sex and by bringing them up to parity. i believe that this remains the policy of the city and county of san francisco. under mayor fine stein the city of san francisco identified jobs classifications traditionally held by women and people of color and paid less than white men. in many cases the positions required skill and experience and were as value to the city as higher paid ones. after the voters adopted proposition h in 1986 the city started reversing years of discrimination any reversing this trend. over the next decade the cities adjusted pay scales to eliminate gender and race based inequity but as american moved forward san francisco is threatening to go in reverse: the department of human resources has reproposed reducing pay for 45 job classifications and held by women and leaving others alone held by white and men workers. many was done by the

. approximately 1,000 jobs during construction, hopefully for san francisco workers and suppliers big and small. when the project is finished, it is estimated we will have 11,000 permanent jobs with all the benefits that will bring to the general fund. the developers engaged in ongoing outreach to organize labor and community advocates. i would like to see more water transportation between piers up and down the bay front. not only will this generate more revenue potential for the department, but more importantly it will make the waterfront, with its beauty and amenities, more accessible to citizens of san francisco and the bay area. i am also very interested in pier 70 master plan or its 67 acre. i am aware september 2008 san francisco voters approved proposition d to preserve and revitalize pier 70. i'm in agreement with the port's vision for pier 70. that creates a vibrant and historic district, a district that reestablishes the historic activity level, activates new waterfront open spaces, creates a center for innovative industry and integrates ongoing ship repair operations. pier 70 is the
into the future, taking this, working with some other departments like san francisco arts, we're creating access for people, creating efficiency with the government being able to manage transactions, creating a platform for people to actually interact with the city on a level that hasn't been done before. so, ideally, using the san francisco rec and park, the future san francisco arts app, using our mobile commerce to manage that is creating jobs, revenue, and efficiency for the public and tourists to be able to navigate san francisco in a way that hasn't been done before. thank you. >> all right.

and to declare this day to be bay view branch library day in san francisco. >> thank you, mayor. so eloquently stated about what this library means to us. when we began planning for this library about six years ago, it's amazing how this community told us loud and clear that they didn't want to settle for a modest plan. they wanted a new library with more space for books, media, they want a library that had spaces for young people to hang out after school so they can learn. they wanted a space to provide dedicated areas for the teens to create and contemplate and to be engaged. they also wanted a state of the arts place of technology. a 20th century library that no on the celebrates the community but looks towards the future. we have 19 computers. laptops, digital media throughout and the community room as the mayor stated is going to be wonderful for civic engagement and for the community to come together for lectures and programs for celebration. all of that has happened. this is your library. when you go inside, you will find a welcoming space that is going to serve many many generations to

francisco came in in terms of actually ading the officer. more broadly how do you think san francisco compares and what are some of the other cities that are doing really well in terms of open data? >> i should be clear. when san francisco is third, we have a pact. i'll add to that actually. what's great in san francisco is there is not just going to be a chief data officer. there is also the office of civic innovation. jay's team, shannon's team. by having both of those units in place i think there is going to be a really powerful team. because you can't just open up the data. you have to do things like this, where you get the community together or you have people actually talking about it because the demand side, as we were talking about it, will be there because there is going to be someone there. there have to be people working with it who are getting out there. i think this is what this city is going to be really powerful. in terms of other cities doing as well, chicago is doing some really interesting stuff. scary cool stuff. they're taking 3 in 1 data, pothole request and crime

preservation issues and as a historian. preservation of san francisco's significant built environment necessarily involves educating and explaining property owner's role in historic preservation. since i was in college in boston in the late 1970s, i've been committed to the preservation, rehabilitation and adaptive reuse of historical buildings. one of the projects that i worked on back then was a very early searchable database for the cataloging of over 1300 architectural drawings by prominent boston area architects of the early and mid 19th century. my thesis project at tufts university was used in research for the rehabilitation of the president's house at boston university and during that period i assisted the prominent new england architectural historian in research and photography for articles and books that she published. to demonstrate my continuing involvement outside of my works for the past five years i've been the program coordinator of a volunteer organization in los altos that has saved a house designed in 1939 by richard noitra who is considered to be one of the most in
inlanded. this assessment which we'll explain more soon is a joint effort between the port of san francisco. i'd like to take this chance to introduce this lady from the office of equal velocity. then i will do a quick overview of the assessment itself. >> thank you directors. i'm jennifer mass from the director of water front projects. when i first approached peter last year to talk about the warriors arena i was really fkdz on the proposed multiply use facility. we were made aware very early on about the ongoing issues with commuter traffic. and peter and i have had the opportunity to work together on multiply phase plans in order to best think about the multiply use arena facility. we were thinking two narrowly. we were also working on two other projects. we weren't thinking about an overarching strategy to look at transportation along the waterfront and really trying to understand the projects were connected from a people moving point of view. the proposed arena will be one of the most assessable projects in the nation. but as i in essence you listen to the neighborhood commuter today
you an example. we now have live entertainment in san francisco, which allows amplified music until 10:00 p.m. if the conditions has no entertainment, and the entertainment, it also includes this limited live provision. we have determined in the city that this legislation is good -- good legislation. there's no conditional use requirement to have this. a lot of people today want to have food, drink, and be able to have some music. how can we get the limited live entertainment excluded from the know amplified or no live entertainment excluded on the transfers? >> that is going to mostly driven locally. most of the conditions you'll ever see on an abc license are because we rely, to a great extent, on the police department and local officials to determine what is best for their communities. i'm not trying to pin this on you guys or blame you guys, but we do try to work with you. we do not tend to want to overrule the police department very often. now that said, i get a fair number of petitions and appeals to me. typically, they are from the neighbors. i want to see that there is actually
in support of jonathan pearlman's candidacy as san francisco historian for the perez r vation commission. although as a physician and epidemiologist, my own career was environmental health, teaching at harvard, ucla, uc berkeley, and then for 27 years heading up environmental health research at the california department of public health. ~ i grew up with a family of architects. after my retirement, i have been helping cal poly pomona restore the historic 1932 studio residences designed by my father, richard noytra, one of the founders of california modern. i have been visiting with other historic modernist house museums around the world to learn about their restoration and programming. i was invited to serve on the program committee of the noytra house in los altos. it was originally a small residence of poet jacqueline johnson, designed by my father in the late 1930s. it has been restored and adaptively reused as an intimate conference venue. i have had the pleasure of working with mr. pearlman on his program committee. what i have noticed about mr. pearlman is this. he understands not
this pioneering and forward looking spirit is alive in san francisco government as well. the new headquarters of the san francisco public utilities commission at a5 25 golden gate avenue is more than just a 13-story building and office ablation. instead, city leaders, departments and project managers join forces with local architectural firms ked to build one of the greatest office buildings in america. that's more than a building. that's a living system. ♪ ♪ when san francisco first bought this land in 1999, it was home to a state office building. >> this was an old eight-story brown building the state owned and the workers' comp people were in that building. it was an old dee correctvth it building for decades. when i was a member of the board of supervisors, all of us wondered why we hadn't done anything there and the mayor thought the same. >> if an earthquake happened, the building was uninhabitable. it sat there vacant for quite a while. the city decided to buy the building in 1999 for $2. we worked and looked at ways that we can utilize the building for an office build

that they get those jobs as well. and that's why it's so important that all the companies in san francisco invest in our effort to create those 5,000 summer jobs, expose them to how to earn their money, not take some handout from somebody. earn their money so that they can have the respect of having a good paycheck and get used to it and get used to success. this is the story that we have to live up to. (applause) >> and it is all about moving forward for everybody. the intent of reenvisioning public housing is so that we can talk to each other about not recreating the story about generations of people stuck in poverty housing. it is about a vision that we agree to, that when we get our paychecks, when we earn those jobs, we move our families forward so that they stay in san francisco and that they are successful in being here in san francisco. that's what we're trying to build. i just got out of a critical hour with senator leno who has been so helpful at the state. and we talked about all of the programs that we need to make sure that we're investing in so that everybody in san francisco
with that the san francisco civil commission put together benchmarkos salaries and positions and san francisco comparable worth committee outlined -- released a report in 1984. next slide. between 1986 and 1989 as was referenced there was a vote of the people, a charter amendment on prevailing wages and pay equity. this amendment was provided for salary adjustments for classes that were historically occupied by minorities and women judged to be of equal in value and higher pay classes occupied strongly by non minority males so that was proposition h. in the same year the mayor's task force issued their report and seiu and the city came to an agreement how to implement pay equity. in 1994 to 99 there was a move to collective bargaining where discussion about pay equity moved into a negotiation between the union and the department of human resources employee relations unit. meanwhile in 1998 san francisco became the first municipality in the world to adopt a local ordinance perfecting the principles of the un convention and end all discrimination against women and in this ordinance there is
